Passenger Killed in Lagos as Car Crashes into Truck

A woman, currently unidentified, died as a result of a crash involving a speeding car and a stationary 20-foot containerized truck at Isolo Underbridge towards Oshodi, Lagos State, on Friday.

The incident, reported by Punch, involved a Kia car with the registration number KWL-475CZ. The Lagos State Traffic Management Authority confirmed that the vehicle was moving at high speed when it struck the truck.

The driver of the car sustained injuries, while the female passenger died from the impact of the collision. Authorities, including LASTMA officials and the Nigeria Police, responded to the scene to free the trapped individual from the wreckage.

The body of the deceased was taken care of by the Lagos State Environmental Health Monitoring Unit and transported to the morgue. The damaged vehicle was moved to the Olosan Police Station.

“Meanwhile, we are awaiting the agency’s heavy-duty equipment, such as a crane and low bed, to remove the abandoned containerized truck from the road,” the statement added.

The identities of the victims had not been established at the time of reporting.
